No way. Only if certain criteria are met.
Some of the founders despised all or parts of christianity and religion. So that should be include as well. The whole "separation of church and state" was because of the bloody history of christianity and other religions. So that history should be thought as well.
- "God is an essence that we know nothing of. Until this awful blasphemy is got rid of, there will never be any liberal science in the world." John Adams.
- "This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it." John Adams.
- "Christianity neither is, nor ever was part of the common law." Thomas Jefferson.
- "The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion." John Adams 1797
So since the only influence that religion had on the founding of the country was in the 1st ammendment, it needs to only be thought to explain why they included what's in that ammendment.
So all the killing that's been done in the name of Christian religion needs to be thought. Since they didn't want that sh*t to happen in the USA.
Yes, the relevance and impact of Christianity in the history of the US should be taught in schools objectively, because it is part of American History. Indoctrination, however, is a different matter, which is why I think it's absolutely ridiculous to try to push religious doctrine into Science classes. Also, things like the Pledge of Allegiance have, in my opinion, no place in classrooms, either. Secularism is key to progress and, as long as we have items connecting scholar institutions to the church, the concept is being held back.
The Pledge of Allegiance was written by a minister. I think it should be removed from class rooms. Separation of church and state.
this makes me sad this generation is messed up because back in the 1800s and back most people in america were christians. and when they first started doing school the only textbooks were the encyclopedia and the bible. there was none of this stupid chemistry or science. they shoved that crap down my throat and i barely passed. they should definatly have christianity in schools maybe not in history but its own class. but thats not gonna happen cause the school board are all athiests. when i wrote a report in school one time and i mentioned god and religion i was given an f automatically. and also when i was feeling suicidel and wanted to be with god one time i went to my counsler to talk but when i mentioned religion they made me leave. then i was bullied because of my beliefs. i nearly killed myself school is hell no kid deserves to go through it the only thing that kept me sane was coming home to play gta with my friends.
Counselors are usually thought not to engage in talks regarding religion with students. That's probably why they made you leave.
And the school board members might not be atheists. But if you went to public school, there are laws against teaching specific religions as "the truth".
